OFFICIAL: Man United Superstar Wins Man Of The Match Award After His Brilliant Performance Today

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick got off to a winning start in his new role by defeating Crystal Palace 1-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday. Fred was the unlikely hero, scoring the game-winning goal on 77 minutes with a stunning strike that finally broke Palace’s resistance. United made a good start to the game, and the difference in their playing style was immediately clear.

Rangnick’s team appeared to be set up in a 4-2-2-2 formation, with Marcus Rashford partnering Cristiano Ronaldo up front and leading the press, with Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes closely following behind.

Despite these encouraging signs, the home team created only a few chances in the first 45 minutes. Ronaldo missed a free kick, and Palace had a couple of half-chances on the break, but neither team had a clear-cut chance.

This pattern continued until the second half, with both defenses holding strong and United reverting to old habits. In the hour mark, Mason Greenwood came on to replace Sancho, while Patrick Vieira brought on Odsonne Edouard to replace Christian Benteke. With little over 20 minutes remaining, Alex Telles’ free kick from the right flank hit the top of the crossbar, and it looked as if it may not be United’s day. Jordan Ayew of Palace had an even better chance five minutes later, firing across goal and over after the ball was headed to him from an initial corner. This warning sparked the game-winner, as United retaliated by continuing the attack.

Fred became the unexpected hero in the 77th minute, when he hit a brilliant drive from outside the penalty area that flew past Vicente Guaita and into the Palace net. In stoppage time, the visitors pressed for an equaliser with repeated corners, but the home team held on to give their new manager a winning start.
